This is great news- another blow to American hegemony. Now if the elections weren't rigged in America, we would probably see the same result and be out of Iraq and Afghanistan by spring '08.
The coalition of the dazed and conflagration of the gullibles are dwindling down to the one real problem at work here- the United Snakes of America- as the leaders are lower than a snakes belly and yellow too. Cowards- hiding behind their military and us human shields.
Hangings too good for them!! I think a good old fashioned biblical stoning is in order- with the Iraqi's throwing the stones.

The "man on horseback" mentality, the belief that a leader's strength is more important than where it leads them, defines a population that is vulnerable to dictatorship.
This is not to call Bush a dictator or suggest that he wants to be one. But let no one believe that it couldn't happen here, as has happened so often elsewhere.
It has happened here, and by the design of better statesmen than Bush.
John Adams, an original American patriot, signed the Alien and Sedition Acts that put people in prison for what they said or wrote.
Abraham Lincoln, one of our three greatest presidents, suspended the writ of habeas corpus.
Woodrow Wilson, a scholar by profession, jailed and deported people for opposing a war that, nearly a century later, still raises the question of what American interests compelled our participation.
Franklin D. Roosevelt put 110,000 men, women and children in concentration camps because of their race.
In each instance, danger was the pretext for suspending democracy and decency.
Precedents we don't want to repeat. The constitution needs a major rewrite to prevent abuses of power like these. Australia modelled its constitution after the American model and so did South Africa. If you support the constitution the way it is written, then you accept slavery, racism and bigotry as guaranteed rights of ""We, the People"" and despotism as your guiding influence. This has to be dealt with. If you can accurately define the "WE", then you know who the constitution was written for. (Hint- it wasn't for "the people", unless you're one of the rich and greedy.)
Let's not let them continue to tell us what they will do to us anymore. Time to get rid of all these phonies who are corrupted by power. The people of Australia are not amused with their elites- lets hope that spreads here and the people can all their asses.
